High Power measurements by USB

By mvuilleu, in Measures, november 29,2013.

People often ask us whether we have a module to measure electric consumption on a high power system. Indeed, the Yocto-Watt is well suited to measure the power consumed by an electrical appliance, but its design limits the measurable power to 16A. This is not enough for example to monitor the global electric consumption of a house, of an industrial electrical installation of some size, nor of a three-phase electric system. Let's have a look at existing solutions for this type of applications.

USB water rockets

By martinm, in DIY, november 21,2013.

Apollo program, Courtesy of NASALast week, we built a water rocket launcher. This week, we deal with the sister issue: the water rocket itself. And because at Yoctopuce we can't help putting USB modules everywhere, we built a USB water rocket...

An autonomous water rocket launcher

By martinm, in Internet of Things and DIY, november 15,2013.

You probably heard of water rockets and might know that it's quite easy to build them yourself with soda bottles and hose nozzles. This type of "toy" can be propelled to quite breathtaking heights, which makes it a rather fun hobby. Well, Yoctopuce looked into it...

Yocto-4-20mA-Rx: the answer to exotic needs

By martinm, in Measures, november 08,2013.

Customers regularly ask us whether we don't want, by any chance, to build a module to measure [insert a physical quantity here]. Sometimes, we jump into it, but we sometimes also decline because the resulting module would be too specific. Therefore, we would likely be unable to sell enough modules to amortize the development costs. We thought about the issue, and we think that we have a reasonable solution.

Weather station: display

By martinm, in Programming, october 31,2013.

Last week, we built a solar weather station which posts its data on xyvely. It's convenient, but it would be simpler to be able to consult the data without having to turn on a computer. This week, we tell you how to show this data on a Yoctopuce display. This requires some programming, but nothing too complex. If you wish, we can do this together...
